New issue 1648 by jtsharma: post-review throws an exception for Perforce
changesets with huge descriptions.
*NOTE: Do not post confidential information in this bug report.*
What version are you running?
What's the URL of the page containing the problem?
What steps will reproduce the problem?
Just have a huge change description with tons of testing details.
What is the expected output? What do you see instead?
post-review to generate a smart error telling users how to fix their change
What operating system are you using? What browser?
Please provide any additional information below.
Added Christian's note here for your reference.
they probably put in a huge Description or Testing field again
we serialize a change descrption in the database, but if it's too long,
the DB can truncate it
really need to just artificially enforce a limit..
this is a database limit
if you can file a bug against RB, I can look into some ways to be smarter
